Our unique SoteriaAV fibre strips off the virus protein coat, resulting in the majority of virus being neutralised; any remaining live virus cannot replicate. AVA™ technology inactivates viral genome transcription, inactivates viral protein translation and polyprotein processing. AVA™ technology starts destroying the virus at first contact, working continuously until the virus has been quickly inactivated, including Coronaviruses; COVID-19/MERS/SARS.
All SoteriaAV Products have been independently Tested to ISO18184 in microbiological laboratories both in the UK & USA - results show that our AVA™ technology inactivates viruses with 90% + more effectiveness than non-AVA products.
SoteriaAV carpets and textile products use technology which disrupts the food chain of dust mites, which are the main cause of asthma allergies. AVA™ technology also prevents the growth of bacteria & fungi.
Viruses can survive on shoes, and then be walked into, and all over a building. So what is the Solution to virus transfer from shoes? The Solution is SoteriaAV incorporating AVA™ technology.
SoteriaAV fibre is combined with our traditional manufacturing materials such as wool, Upcycle Fibre etc and can therefore be used in the production of any bespoke Hand Tufted & Hand-Woven product.
AVA™ technology delivers its properties in the most safe and effective way. AVA™ is incorporated into the fibre itself and not simply provided as a layer on the surface of our products, therefore it is long lasting & can withstand extended periods of daily wear & maintenance including professional wet cleaning systems.
The same AVA™ Technology is incorporated within the fabric of our facemasks, adding a layer of protection against airborne particulates; viruses are quickly neutralised when in contact with our fabric.
Built-in layered fabric filtration will also greatly diminish the quantity of airborne pollutants from entering the respiratory system.
SoteriaAV fibre is combined with our Upcycled (LuxuryEco) Fibre; Meaning that every mask is contributing to the reduction in plastic waste within our oceans.
The Collagen layer within our Mask excels in moisture absorption; the result of abundant hydrophilic groups within collagen peptides and cellulose fibres.
SoteriaAV products are designed for the purpose of adding additional layers of protection against Viruses & allergies. Please note that our Anti-viral & Anti-allergy face masks are not meant for use as a replacement for medical grade Personal Protective Equipment, and in circumstances where medical grade Personal Protective Equipment is recommended, you should consult a health care professional. Please always follow National & local Government Covid guidelines.
